cargo-partner’s Project Cargo teams demonstrate excellence in complex transports

Over the past several months, cargo-partner’s dedicated Project Cargo teams around the world have handled several challenging and high-profile shipments by sea, air and road.

The international transport and logistics provider has long-standing expertise in managing oversized, heavy and out-of-gauge shipments. Erich Schatz, Corporate Director Product Management Sea Cargo FCL, explains: “At cargo-partner, we are proud of the dedication of our Project Cargo teams worldwide. Each project is a testament to our ‘we take it personally’ motto and exemplifies our commitment to overcoming challenges and delivering tailor-made solutions for our customers.”

Motorcycles from the Czech Republic to Papua New Guinea
cargo-partner’s team in the Czech Republic recently transported motorcycles and equipment to Papua New Guinea for the popular reality TV show “Vandráci.” Overcoming complexities that deterred other forwarders, cargo-partner’s Project Cargo team orchestrated a seamless sea freight journey. The comprehensive project support included transshipment in Malaysia, return shipping via Bremerhaven, and storage of the bikes at the cargo-partner warehouse in Prague. The production team were very satisfied with the service provided and have expressed their interest in working with cargo-partner again in the future.

Security Vaults from Poland to Sweden
The logistics provider’s Swedish team delivered five large security vaults by road, each weighing between 10 to 18 tons. After being loaded at the customer’s factory in Poland, four of the vaults made their way to the island of Gotland, while the fifth went on to Malmö. For the Malmö delivery, a 70-ton crane was used to lift the 15.7-ton vault onto specialized “skateboards” equipped with air cushions, which allowed the team to smoothly roll the vault into its designated location.

31 Cranes from China to Indonesia
When presented with the task of transporting 31 overhead cranes to Indonesia, the Project Cargo team in China developed a comprehensive and cost-effective door-to-door solution. The team went above and beyond by assisting the customer in preparing all necessary documents for the sea freight shipment, coordinating the loading plan with the factory, and facilitating smooth customs clearance at both the origin and destination.

Roof Tile Bending Machines from Japan to Poland
The team in Poland ensured the timely delivery of advanced metal roof tile bending machines from Japan to Poland, utilizing air freight for a swift and efficient solution. To meet the customer’s urgent needs, the shipment was split into two parts, with cargo transitioning between air and land. The first part consisted of five boxes weighing 13 tons, while the second part comprised six boxes weighing 14 tons. The strategic transport plan resulted in both parts reaching their destination in just six days.

Baking Ovens from Germany to the UK
cargo-partner UK accepted the challenge of transporting two oversized baking ovens for an international bakeware company by road. The team collaborated with the cargo-partner Frankfurt office and the customer’s German office to navigate German customs laws, resulting in same-day export clearance upon loading.

Slew Ring Bearing from Italy to India
The teams in Italy and India collaborated to manage the oversized air freight shipment of a slew ring bearing, overcoming challenges in finding the right airline and ensuring secure transport for the valuable cargo within a tight timeframe. The shipment, with a gross weight of 1,200 kg, was picked up from the Milan area and made its way to India via Doha, Qatar, arriving in Delhi just in time.

Lathe and Parts from Italy to the USA
Another success story from Italy saw the local team working with colleagues in the USA to transport a lathe and spare parts from Norfolk, USA to Genoa, Italy via sea freight on flat rack containers. For the final delivery, the team obtained a special road transport permit within a record time of only 15 days, enabling the customer to avoid storage and detention costs.

Automotive Manufacturing Machines from China to Serbia
The cargo-partner team in Serbia successfully handled a shipment of press tools for the production of automotive parts. After picking up the cargo in Shanghai, the logistics provider organized the sea freight transport via the Croatian port of Rijeka to Serbia. Finally, the machines were delivered from cargo-partner’s warehouse in Belgrade to their destination by truck and trailer.
